Happy Monday Y’all! As productive as this Mercury Retrograde was, I am looking forward to saying goodbye to the backwards energy on Friday. This time around, the Mercury Retrograde forced me to take care of old issues, that I would have preferred to keep hidden under my bed. As much as I wish that I could ignore something away, I can’t. This week, my challenge for myself is to be more proactive. I choose to take ownership of my life, I choose to work through minor issues before they blow up into major road blocks. After all, the early bird gets the discount.
With that thought, here are your Georgia Nicols Horoscopes for October 5th to October 11th.
This week is a mixed bag. Monday will have surprises; but please note: on Monday, avoid shopping (except for gas, food and drink) or making important decisions. But hey — it’s a great day for artistic creativity. Tuesday is tricky. Power struggles in the morning; practical opportunities in the afternoon; confusion and self-doubt in the evening. (Whaaat?) Wednesday, is a lovely day! (But it too, will hold surprises.) Thursday begins pleasantly but loses its lustre as the day wears on. Thankfully, Friday is a strong, energetic, positive day that marks the end of Mercury retrograde. Yay! Saturday is challenging. Bad day to shop (all day) plus relationships are tense. Grrr. Sunday is positive and interesting; but people are rebellious. And that’s it folks! Sounds like a good week to play Bureaucracy — that’s where everyone stands in a circle and the first person to do anything loses.
You are pumped with energy because the Sun is still in your sign boosting you mentally and physically, as well as attracting people and favourable situations to you. Finally, this week, Mercury will stop being retrograde in your sign, which will make life easier for you in the immediate future. All those silly errors and goofy mistakes will diminish. But as the week progresses, you might come to some spiritual revelations or an epiphany. You will see how much of your world and your life are literally under your own control. You will also see that you will benefit most when what you do benefits others as well as you. This isn’t corny, Pollyanna stuff – it’s a fact of life.
This is the perfect time for you to play it low key and do some private, internal strategizing. That’s because your birthday is coming up, right? This means your new personal year is about to begin. With this in mind, use the next few weeks to plan your new year or set some goals, especially goals with timelines and deadlines. Once you clearly define goals with deadlines – the odds that you will achieve those goals are far far better. In addition, when you define a goal in your mind, it becomes closer to being a reality instead of a wishful thinking. Meanwhile, you are super active with friends and groups this week, especially competitively and physically. Something good might come of this. In fact, your introduction to a group could be life changing.
This continues to be a popular time for you. You can especially benefit by bouncing your hopes and dreams for the future off others to see what their feedback is because their comments will be meaningful for you. (Unless you have stupid friends.) You might have a confrontation with a friend or someone in a group on Tuesday – be aware of this. It’s not worth burning a bridge. (And Sagittarians like to water their trap lines.) The good news is that by the end of the week, some kind of opportunity will exist for you whereby you can improve your reputation or get a promotion or look good in the eyes of a others. “All hail Caesar!”
With the Sun at high noon in your chart, casting a flattering light on you, you continue to look wonderful to everyone, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Naturally, this is the perfect time to make your pitch or go after what you want because the likelihood of approval and endorsement is high. Be careful on Tuesday because quarrels with authority figures (basically power struggles) are likely. Don’t even go there because the cost is not worth it. A lovely possibility does await you: By the end of the week, a chance to travel somewhere or take a course or study under someone could be marvelous. It could lead to big changes in the future. Yeah!
Continue to look for every chance to travel or expand your world because this will appeal to you. Likewise, look for every opportunity to take courses or study or learn something new because you are hungry for knowledge and new information. Do avoid controversial subjects on Tuesday because a power struggle with someone about politics, religion or philosophical or racial issues could arise. Who needs this? Not you. Fortunately, by the end of the week, it looks like you might see ways to either boost your partner’s income or benefit from a shared transaction. It might also be something to do with shared property Ka-ching! Looking good!
You’re passionate about everything now. Nothing is grey – everything is black and white. This applies to all your dealings with others, including intimate relationships. In addition, with fiery Mars opposite your sign, you find others to be so annoying, which of course, they are – but what can one do? Sigh. You must admit you find it difficult now to “give in” or compromise in order to get cooperation from others. But hey, we all know that at times, compromise is necessary to avoid needless controversy and confrontation. We all compromise at some point, not because it’s a weakness, but because it’s a strength. On the upside, it will be easy to clear the air with someone. But remember: Never trust a dog to watch your food.
The first thing to keep in mind this week is this: This is the only time all year when the Sun is directly opposite your sign, which means it is as far away from you as it can get. Meanwhile, the Sun is your source of energy. Connect the dots. You are going to need more sleep because your energy will be flagging. Fortunately, your ruler Mars is going through the part of your chart that energizes you at work. Mars will also make you a tad bossy, as well. So get more rest; be patient with others (that oppositional Sun) – and use a lovely gift that materializes by the weekend, which will allow you to make great improvements to your health and/or wonderful improvements to your job. Sounds good to me.
This week, you want are keen to be efficient, effective and productive! You want the most bang for your buck for your work – and you want this to apply to your efforts to be healthier, as well. “Yeah, I want it all!” One encouraging piece of news: The crazy, silly errors, mistakes and confusion that have dogged your steps at work will now dramatically reduce. Whew! You might even look like you’re in control and on top of things. Oh happy day! New romance is promising. (You devil.) Lord knows you are sensuous, juicy peach! This is a good week to make major decisions about future vacations, as well as decisions about children and creative projects. “Let’s do it. I want everyone in period costumes – but I want the chorus rocking in punk leather!”
This continues to be a playful, romantic, fun-loving time for you. However romantic arguments and power struggles with kids are likely. Meanwhile, renovations and redecorating projects continue to appeal to you. And this is a good thing because, by the end of the week, you will have an opportunity to make sweeping changes at home, or within your family dynamic, that are an improvement. Yay! This improvement will probably make things work between a group, perhaps your family, or a group that meets at your home. Continue to reward yourself with opportunities to play, even if it’s just timeout for puzzles, crosswords or stimulating diversions. (Yes, sex qualifies.)
Your focus on home, family and personal issues continues. In fact, this is an excellent time to do home repairs. It’s also a good time for family discussions. Relatives that have been camped on your doorstep have probably left. Your ability to charm others with your words is excellent this week. Not only are you charming and diplomatic, you will also be forthright, specific and convincing, if not slightly scary. Be careful about arguments this week because you tend to identify with your beliefs, which can give others the impression that you are attacking them. Having said that, by the end of the week, you will be able to present a plan or convince others to go along with what you want, even if it is radically different, which it very well might be.
The busyness of your life continues and it’s a tad frantic, isn’t it? (Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.) Short trips and a busy schedule are unavoidable. Fortunately, because Mercury will stop going backwards (in relation to planet Earth) your ability to go forward with new plans will improve. The most significant thing of note this week is that by the end of the week, you might attract, invent, discover or materialize a new source of earnings. Ka-ching! At the very least, it will be a way that you can boost your income. For a few of you, it could be the purchase of something major, life-changing and expensive. (You love this sort of thing.)
With fiery Mars in your sign until mid November, you are gangbusters! It’s an indication that there is a lot of activity in your life, and that you’re willing to work hard to further your own agenda. Furthermore, you will have no trouble asserting yourself to show the world what you can do. This is because Mars will make you much more of a fighter for your own rights than usual. In addition, it will pump your energy. Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter is in your sign, bringing you blessings and good fortune. Your focus on money and cash flow, of course, continues this week. But by the end of the week, something might happen that allows you to improve your image for the better – waaaay for the better.
